Baltic Cities Cruise - Fred Olsen

The Sleek and stylish Black Watch has the intimate and sophisticated ambience for which all cruise ships were once famous. The ship has an impressive range of dining choices from the inviting elegance of the Glentanar Restaurant or the more intimate Orchid Room, to the convenience and informality of the delightful Garden Cafe or a snack in the sun at the Poolside cafe or Marquee pool Bar.


A sparkling array of amenities ensure that boredom is never an issue on board. You can choose from two swimming pools, a fitness centre, health and beauty salon, deck sports, discos and dancing and a dazzling spectrum of more active diversions to fill your days and nights.


    Your Cruise Itinerary

Your Cruise Itinerary


Wednesday: After collecting you from home we make our way to Dover for the early afternoon boarding. The ship usually sails at 4.00pm

Thursday: Relax and explore the ship as we cruise towards Germany.

Friday: This morning we arrive in the Baltic port of Warnemunde, gateway to the city of Rostock. From here you will have the opportunity to visit Germany’s fascinating and historic capital Berlin.

Saturday: Today we enjoy another days cruising as we head down towards Estonia.

Sunday: Our port of call today is the ancient Hanseatic city of Tallinn which is proud of its beautiful churches, solid limestone houses and well preserved cobbled streets. Take time to visit the Toompea Hill with its medieval houses and alleyways in the oldest part of the city and the ornate Alexander Nevsky Cathedral should not be missed.

Monday/Tuesday: Today we dock in St Petersburg. This Russian city is one of the highlights of the cruise and is home to the spectacular Winter Palace with over 1000 rooms making it the most magnificent of the 6 buildings that make up the Hermitage Museum. The city is built on 40 islands at the mouth of the River Neva and is a captivating city with its baroque palaces, wide elegant streets, ornate bridges and broad curving canals. (please note if you wish to make your own way in Russia you will need a visa which must be obtained prior to leaving the UK)

Wednesday: Today we visit Helsinki in Finland, a city re-created by the Tsars of Russia as a mini St. Petersburg. Surrounded by sea on 3 sides and with a beautiful archipelago forming the city centre, the city has a very special atmosphere and many interesting attractions.

Thursday: This morning we stop at Turku. Turku has a long history as Finland's largest city and occasionally as the administrative centre of the country, but has, over the last two centuries, lost both titles to Helsinki. To this day, the city's identity stems from its status as the oldest city in Finland and the country's first capital.

Friday: Time to relax and enjoy the day as we cruise back towards Demark.

Saturday: Today’s destination is the wonderful city of Copenhagen. You can visit the beautiful Tivoli Gardens, northern Europe’s premier amusement park, the former sailor’s district of Nyhavn with its gabled houses and outdoor restaurants lining the picturesque fishing harbour and canal. There are several spectacular churches, such as the church of St. Saviour in Christianshavn, which has a golden staircase winding up the outside of a tower that is topped by a golden globe.

Sunday: Our final port of call is Aalborg, which is the fourth largest city in Denmark. Here you will find narrow streets, beautiful old houses, fascinating museums and other attractions, good restaurants and excellent shopping possibilities.

Monday: A final day to relax as we cruise back to the UK.

Tuesday: After breakfast disembarkation usually starts about 9.30am and we will be waiting to take you back home.
